Congratulations on your positive choice to consider building your PMI professional skills as a member of our Chapter! By this initiative, you’re securing access to a comprehensive network of career resources and multiple opportunities to grow your own skills and get ahead of your peers in industry. Now, the next step is to get to know one another, so we cordially invite you to join us for the Member Orientation from 5:30-6:15 p.m. This event is for any member that is new to the chapter, as well as those considering joining or current members who want to refresh their contacts and information.

The  presentation will provide an opportunity to learn more about the Global and local chapter benefits, training & PDU opportunities, scheduled membership activities and your benefits for active participation. In addition, this is a great opportunity to meet the current Board members and find out more about their Chapter vision and goals.

Speaker: Rob Kutz - Rob currently serves as the Vice President of Membership for the PMIMSL chapter.

DINNER MEETING: 6:15 PM - 8:30 PM

In 1807, a brilliant, creative, and controversial American by the name of Robert Fulton declared his intent to build an experimental “steamboat,” which would be used to initiate a continuous passenger service between New York City and Albany, New York. With the success of his North River Steam Boat, Fulton showed that it was possible to alter artificially both a person’s location and the amount of time it took to change it. In so doing, he also broke through the enormous psychological barrier that had existed in people’s minds; it was, in fact, possible to overcome Nature to practical effect. 

 It took time for many people to accept Robert Fulton’s triumph as the truth. One man who did not need to be convinced was a sloop captain named Moses Rogers. He had witnessed the first successful runs of the North River Steam Boat to Albany, and the experience gave him the fever—steamboat fever. Moses soon became one of the first steamboat captains in history, taking command of one of Fulton’s first rivals, the Phoenix. In his new profession, Moses learned not only the technicalities of this revolutionary invention, but the peculiarities of a traveling public just getting used to this new mode of transport. In the years immediately following Fulton's triumph, running these steamboats on rivers, lakes and bays became a normal and accepted part of American life. But taking such a vessel on a voyage across the ocean was a different proposition altogether. Experienced mariners didn’t think it could be done. These early steamboats, they declared, were just too flimsy and unwieldy to withstand the dangers of the deep. But Moses believed otherwise. Combining his knowledge of the old mode of transport (sail) with the new mode of transport (steam), he set out to design a vessel that was capable of overcoming the many dangers of the sea. This craft would be not a steamboat, but a "steamship," the first of its kind. This PMI-tailored presentation will show how Captain Rogers employed a variety of project management techniques to successfully complete this revolutionary vessel...nearly two centuries ago!

Presenter, John Laurence Busch, is an independent historian who focuses upon the interaction between humanity and technology, specializing in the first generation of steam-powered vessels. He has devoted years of research to discovering the true story of Captain Moses Rogers and the steamship Savannah. The result is STEAM COFFIN, the most descriptive account of the saga of Captain Moses Rogers and the steamship Savannah ever written. John’s careful weaving together of many disparate sources results in a narrative that recalls both the fabric and style used in storytellings of old. It also shows just what Captain Moses Rogers and the steamship Savannah accomplished for posterity. STEAM COFFIN has received positive book reviews from more than two dozen periodicals in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. John has made over 300 presentations on Captain Rogers and the Savannah to a wide variety of audiences, from Maine to Puerto Rico to California, and across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe.
